Fall 2014 has been the most productive span of time I've had as a professional actor. Over our 7-week run (PSF's contract ran from September 17 - November 22nd with 3 weeks of rehearsal) we reached over 14,000 middle and high school students. We performed for both seasoned Shakespeare theatre-goers and underprivileged children in struggling schools. Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival's WillPower Educational Tour was a transformational experience. I can only hope to do another show and be a part of another process as fun as this.
Please check out some pictures from the tour of Much Ado About Nothing to the left! Enjoy!
We at Improbable Stage Company (pictured below) are finishing up the first draft of our new show. We will be workshopping the piece in early September for anyone who is interested in seeing what we have thus far. This month I'll be directing my vignette for the piece, which focuses on failure.
These and more exciting projects on the way in the months to come. Keep your eyes and ears open!
Much Ado About Nothing premieres June 5th at 8pm! Other show dates and times are:
June 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21st at 8pm
June 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 at 3pm
I am also playing Benjamin Franklin in the Traveling Lantern Theatre Company's production of "The Industrious Mr. Franklin" , a show that will be running throughout the summer at NY and NJ public libraries. Please contact me for more information if you're interested in attending!

"The youthful cast handles both verse and prose with confidence and brio. Fedorko, adept at low Shakespearean comedy, makes Dogberry a highlight of the proceedings."

It's been a great month!
The run of "Who the F*** Started All This" was a success. So much so that the show was extended! You can find us at the Producer's Club on W 44th Street and 9th ave on Thursdays-Saturdays at 10pm! Special discounted tickets are available (down to $5!) if you contact me via my website. Please get in touch!
"Much Ado About Nothing" is now in full swing. The cast is vibrant, talented and excited to spend more time with each other in run and tech-throughs. Our show will run the first 3 weekends in June (5-8, 12-15, 19-21).
Some more very exciting news: I have been picked up by Aqua Model Management (AMM) for their commercial and on-camera division. Check out AMM's website below! This along with ongoing developments for July and August is making 2014 a very good year. And through it all I'm clowning away! Check out this picture of a man I ran into while doing some parties in Harlem this past weekend. Boy, what style!!
March has been an amazing month so far. My Shakespeare class at the Pearl Theater Company with Robin Leslie-Brown and Dominic Cuskern has allowed me to meet many wonderful actors and has connected me to some great opportunities! My film acting class with Bill Hopkins has taught me a lot about translating my very physical method of acting to the screen.
Just yesterday I received word that I was cast in another Shakespeare show, "Much Ado About Nothing" as the role of Dogberry with the the company "What Dreams May Co." The show will be premiering June 5th and will be running until June 21st. If you'd like to know more about the company, their website can be found below.
I've also started working with Wingspan Arts and their after school program. More information about this amazing organization and their inspirational goals can be found below.
And, of course, WHO THE FUCK STARTED ALL THIS, the bulgarian absurdist play I'm currently in rehearsal for, is in full swing! We will be going from March 28th til April 6th at the Producer's Club. Check out The Whitelisted's website and the link for tickets below!! Can't wait to see you there!
Last month a lot of exciting developments came through! I started taking classes at The Pearl Theater Company's conservatory, an 8 week, 12 person class where we prepare and perform weekly scenes. This upcoming week I'm starting up film acting classes with Bill Hopkins at Weist-Barron Studios through their scholarship program. Improbable Stage Company had a ground-breaking meeting in the beginning of January, where a lot of our themes started blending into solid plans for vignettes. We will be putting these vignettes on their feet and developing the show, which will appear later this year. Most importantly, I've been cast in the Whitelisted Theater Company's production of "Who the Fuck Started All This", a bulgarian absurdist play where I have been cast as a Clown! The play is meaty, intense, and explores a conflicted yet loving set of characters. The show will be premiering March 28th-April 6th. For more information, check out Whitelisted's website:
On Monday and Wednesday of next week, I'll be going out to Patchogue, Long Island to film a short film, "21st Century Shuffle" with director Anthony Perrotta. Very excited to be starting the New Year off with a short film! "21st Century Shuffle" will be submitted to multiple film festivals.
Today and tomorrow I'll be spending 14 hours total working with WT McRae and company on acrobatic dancing. Apparently "the focus of the two days will be continued acro training, standing mounts, three high structures, a look at tumbling, and some exploration of spiraling language". Can't wait!
Was just cast in a short film called "21st Century Shuffle", a thesis by a B.F.A student! Will keep you updated on more details later!
